  • On Wednesday, February 14, Yalow’s 2nd- and 3rd-grade students will visit the American Museum of Natural History. Teachers will guide children through exhibits as part of their general studies. Children return to the school at 11:45 a.m. for early dismissal. Wednesday dismissal is at 12:00 p.m. so teachers may participate in professional development. Children must be dressed in their school uniforms or they may not go on the trip. Please let teachers know if you are interested in volunteering to chaperone students on this or future trips to the museum.

  • Wednesday programs are open to students by invitation, and parents should consult with their child’s teachers. Students need tactical instruction in chess and fencing to become more competitive team players. Wednesday sessions go beyond Yalow’s regular curriculum chess and fencing classes, focusing on tournament competition. Yalow’s fencing team practice is for advanced second and third graders, with students using steel épées (one of three fencing weapons).

  • The Yalow’s new Family Support Alumni Group continues meeting for its tenth session with returning parents and children who previously participated in the Yalow Family Support Group program and wish to return for continued skill development in the areas of social skills (children) and reflective parenting.
